Journey of a Quilter who is our lovely hostess .
Yesterday as I was heading out the driveway to go quilting at the church I thought I would check the mailbox to see if there was any mail and to my surprise and delight these two postcards were in the box. You see I had signed up for a postcard exchange on a yahoo group and the theme was My Happy Place . The card on the left is of course a door and Heather says her happy place is behind this door , her home ,isn't it sweet . Then the card on the right I am sure you can already guess is the prairies , the Canadian praires ,Saskatchewan to be exact and Monika made this fantastic landscape of the wheat and canola fields of her area that she so loves and I am not sure you can see clearly but she has embroidered little flowers in the foreground to depict the wild flowers growing along the road side , she also did some threadpainting of the grasses and I have to say I was doing a happy dance when I seen this card , it is simply gorgeous . I have one more card to arrive so will be watching my mailbox closely and promise to share it when it arrives . One last call for the postcard exchange , if you are interested please email me and send your address and I will give you a partner and away you go , now you can see what fabulous mail you can receive how can you resist , come on I know you want to do this , it isn't hard honest . Oh here is a picture of the back of the postcard to show you that it goes through the mail with the stamp on the back and note how she has printed the word postcard , apparently the postoffice wants that on there ,it is so neat that they do arrive just fine , I was a little intimidated the first time putting it straight in the mail without an envelope and the person at the postoffice had never seen a fabric postcard before so was also surprised but thought they were rather neat .
I am off to work on my little project I shared a couple of days ago I do have a time frame to get that done so best not waste any more . Have a terrific day and may the sunshine on you today .Thanks for stopping by it is always a pleasure to have you . hugs Sheila
